The Official Top Tips for FCE by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations
The Official Top Tips for FCE by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations
This (old) edition of FCE Top Tips is a 64 or so page long booklet that provides simple but useful tips on how to approach the FCE exam. In addition to the booklet with the information and tips, there is a CD Rom and there is a complete test for each paper and answers (for Reading, Use of English and Listening) or sample answers (for writing).

Roy West, who is a regular columnist for the well-respected Card Player magazine and a Las Vegas poker teacher, has written a very easy-to-read and reliable introduction for 7 card stud (high only).

The book is written in Roy's unpatronising and clear style and consists mostly of short lessons that are easy to understand. Approximately two thirds of the book cover 7 card stud strategy with the rest being made up of 'Roy's Rules'. These range from 'Play Happy or Don't Play' to 'Can I make a living playing low to medium-limit poker?' and a mastery of these will save any poker player far more than any strategy. There is also a short section on 7 card stud tournaments and some… Read more
